Will Abstract of Adam Lough

Adam Lough's will ("being very sick & weak in body") was signed on 5 November 1789. His wife Barbara was named executrix and given wide powers to pay his debts and to care for his children. His eldest son Adam, then scarcely ten years old, was given twelve years after he came of age to make yearly payments to his brothers and sisters. If he elected to make these payments (which were to be based on an appraisal of the value of his plantation) then Adam was to have his father's land. If not, it was to be sold at public vendue and Adam was to have £10 above an equal share of the proceeds as the eldest son and heir of his father. Two daughters, Catherine and Mary, apparently already married, were not to have their payment until the rest of the children had been paid. The implication is that they had some small settlement at the time of their marriage. These are the only three children mentioned by name, but it appears that he was survived by at least 12 children at the time of his death. The will was apparently written by Robert Poage, and he and Jacob Conrad (who had also lived earlier in the Tulpehocken Valley) were the two witnesses. He signed his will as Adam Loch, although he is called Lough in the text. [Pendleton County Will Book I, page 6]
